A Case of Cecal Cancer With Heterotopic Ossification

Ayaka Omori, Hiroki Hashida, Satoshi Kaihara

Abstract


Heterotopic bone formation in the colon is rare, and its mechanism is still unclear. A 45-year-old man with severe anemia was referred to our hospital and was diagnosed as with cecal cancer on exploratory colonoscopy. On right hemicolectomy with lymphadenectomy, the cut surface of the resected specimen showed a type 2 tumor with a white solid lesion in the cecum. The histopathological study revealed a moderately differentiated adenocarcinoma with ossification. Herein we report and discuss this rare case.
